2. Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Champagne Socialite (full sized)
Retail Cost: $15
This nail polish is non toxic, cruelty free, and vegan among many other things. It is free from harmful chemicals and completely animal friendly. This particular shade is described as a rose gold foil finish, and it is GORGEOUS! It does take two coats of polish to achieve the opacity I wanted, it dries very quickly though which means layering coats will be much faster. Below are two pictures of the product on my nail, the first with one coat and the second with two coats.

I can’t wait to try out this mascara!
Just to show how great of a deal Ipsy is, I’ve calculated the approximate price of all the Glam Bag items, and it works out to be roughly $50.32 for this specific Glam Bag. That’s incredibly impressive, especially considering that you paid only 10 dollars for all of these products plus the makeup bag.
